☢️Avoid unnecessary proposals

To prevent spam, all governance proposals must obtain a minimum deposit. On the Terra chain, if 33.4% of the total vote is NoWithVeto, quorum is not met, or the minimum deposit isn't reached, the deposit will be burned. All other vote outcomes get their deposits refunded. For more information on deposits and refunds, visit the Terra governance overview.

  1. Open Station and connect your wallet. In the sidebar, click Governance.

  2. Click on New proposal.

💡Community feedback

Before submitting a proposal on the Terra chain, try to get community feedback on the Terra Agora research forum or the respective forum on the proposal you're creating. Do not use text proposals to suggest parameter changes. For more information, visit the Terra Governance module reference page.

  1. Select the type of proposal, enter a title, a description, and the number of tokens you will offer as an initial deposit.

  2. Enter your password and click Submit.

Your proposal will enter the deposit period. After the minimum deposit has been reached, the proposal will enter a voting period. Governance parameters will vary between chains. On the Terra chain, the minimum deposit is 512 Luna, the deposit period can last up to two weeks, and the voting period lasts one week.
